Last year, we did a bit on gaining unimaginable wealth from your novel becoming a runaway bestseller. I mean…come on, we all dream of our story turning out to be that have-to-read-it/can’t-put-downable hit. The responses were outstanding. Everyone on the Rock enjoyed the party.So now, why don’t we finish the game of ‘What Could Happen’ and indulge ourselves by sharing with everyone the celebrities that we envision playing our characters? Please…plug away whether your novel is in the works, looking for the right publication venue, or out there in circulation.
I’ll humbly kick us off. From the beginning of my first draft of Tattoo Rampage, I saw Gary Oldman as the bad guy. Acid, the villain, has a diminutive frame, but mucho intensity (I hope I wrote him this way at least) that rivals Oldman’s amazing performance in the movie Sid and Nancy. Acid is scummy, looks almost dead, highly intelligent (a chess champion at the age of seven), is very well spoken, but looks like he’s about to explode every second. Gary Oldman would be too old—no pun intended—to play him if the book went to film, but it hit me recently that Sam Rockwell would more than be able to do the job. Rockwell, an amazing man of many faces, was very memorable as a creep in The Green Mile.A mentor/love interest spruces up my novel, I believe, by being an up and coming comedian. Whereas Dane Cook’s banter kept playing in my ear for the dialogue, Cook wouldn’t quite have the look. Hey, that rhymes! Zig, the mentor, is tall and chiseled, but very insecure even though he is a master of warfare. I think Armie Hammer, the actor slated to play the Lone Ranger this summer, would pull the role off due to his sense of humor.
Enough about me. Friends, let’s hear your star struck input.
